What truly stuck out to me about Cannon Busters was its writing — it hardly resembles anything I’ve seen recently in an anime. The dialogue and comedic pacing truthfully have more in common with western animation than anime. This makes sense when you find out that the creator of the show and the author of the original Cannon Busters graphic novel, as well as the show’s writer, are American. And as a result, we get a natural sounding dub. This dichotomy creates combines a familiar vernacular with a beloved art style, which to me seems indicative of how diverse the anime industry is becoming.
